Well it's official, Kobe Bryant will NOT be playing in the season opener.

He isn't even running yet. It's looking like Christmas is the likely return time.

The whole Kobe coming back early was so overblown haha. He'll probably come back a bit early compared to the average player, but not this early.

Seems like Danny Granger just can't catch a break. He's going to be out the first three weeks of the season. But the Pacers are saying that the length of time is just a precautionary measure to make sure he's physically ready given the fact that he missed pretty much all last season.

Well the Mavs are already in need of a new GM after parting ways with Gersson Rosas after just 3 months.

 

He was poached from the Rockets and I can vouch on how good the guy is, so I wonder what the problem was?

The Mavs didn't have a GM for years. I don't think they had one since Don Nelson was the GM before Rosas came on board. Donnie runs the show with Cuban.

 

Stein is saying that they just didn't mesh. 

 

 

Edit: If someone does League Pass online, will you tell me if it is worth a damn this year. Deadspin always says that it is shit, and I don't want to throw down 130 on crap.

My initial reaction to the GM thing was :shock:  :shock:  :shock: !!??!!??  Kim Kardashian was almost married as long as he was with us...No big deal. He probably wasn't comfortable with how involved Donnie and Mark get into basketball decisions.

 

Why don't you just get the full League Pass? Early Bird special is only 50 bucks more (until Nov 5th) and you get mobile and online free.

There's a free trial lasting till November 5th if you want to try it yourself.

I would say the exact same thing but replace 'Lakers' with Clippers ... I know it's only day 1, but this looks like the same old regular season team they've been the past couple years. Doc Rivers was the biggest signing of the summer behind Dwight. I guess we'll have to give him some time but first impression didn't say much. I expected a comfortable 8-12 point win the other way. Props to the Lakers. They looked good.

Only one game, but anyone else think the Clippers should start shopping Griffin? His development has been pretty nonexistent, might be time to see what they can get for him. Still only 1 game so maybe its just season opening jitters.

heat win, rose goes back to the losers table and doc gets beat in his season opener against what was supposed to be the lowly lakers?  good opening night.


There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Did anybody else see Norris Cole absolutely destroy Rose's ankles with his crossover?

If you look at it from another angle, you can see pretty clearly that Rose got tripped up by Birdman.

I don't think it would've mattered if Andersen had been there or not. Rose jumped to his left, and was left badly out of position.

How does the leg of a near 7-footer tripping up Rose not matter? The play wouldn't have looked nearly as nice if it wasn't embellished by the fact that Rose got tripped up by Andersen and fell down. 



#112 lolwhat  

Posted 30 October 2013 - 08:27 PM

Rose fell for it pretty clearly, I'll concede that. The trip is what made it dramatic, though.

 

Hope he settles down as the season gets underway.

Andrew Bynum is definitely rusty, but he managed to show why the Cavs signed him with a few good plays.

Rose looks about a step slow, hopefully it'll get better as the season goes on.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

The Cavs played quite well to beat the Nets to open the season. Having quality depth is huge for this team.

I knew it was gonna be a tough game tonight but Harden and Howard took that 4th quarter over. Howard especially just looked fantastic, he put up 17 pts. 26 rbs.

 

Howard and Asik alone out-rebounded the Bobcats 40-37.
